~ Introductions, Identify Sensory Styles ~ Representational Systems carry different words ~

Listen, and Playback with building rapport –

Let’s play –

Your State and the World; Your ‘state’ is reflective of your emotional condition – mood, thoughts, feelings –

You can be more consciously aware of your ‘state’ – you are in control of it.  In a funk, move it around, your outcomes, how you experience the world is different – in a better state.  Have you ever been in a slump? Received an exciting phone call – and BAM, the world looks different?

Yes, sometimes we have joy, anger, happiness, sadness – but for the most part, we are somewhere in between – this is our ‘baseline state’ – how we see the world.

WANT CHANGE?  Remember a time when you were upset/unhappy – look at your posture, notice yourself – NOW WIPE THAT SCREEN – now remember a time happy/feel it – describe story.  Notice your physiology –

Change up physiology can do same –

Why is this important – changing from negative to positive will yield results – Changing another’s State – If a person is behaving negatively – Change State – Move from an intense state to a neutral state, allowing you/or another space to adopt to another state –

How? Ask them to stand up – point to something in the room, make them laugh, noise, distraction….

We will also learn about building rapport; 90 degree angle – Matching with them, not mimicry – putting them at ease,

voice, rhythm, posture – eye contact …. Listen, without judgement, analyzing, predicting, listen with understanding and empathy –

Why?  People want to be heard.  Playback/representational style, posture, eye contact – verbiage.

Clarify, validate –

Creating Outcomes; Consistent High Achievers are outcome focused –

Exercises for Creating Outcomes – Practice and Believe –

Harmony with others – harmony with yourself –

Wrap up with Eye Accessing Cues –

A brief review;  Introduction to NLP

Introduction/Meaning of NLP – Neuro linguistic programming – addresses three factors involved in the human xperience; Neurology, Language and Programming.

Neuro – Nervous System – which we gather and process information through our five senses –

Sight – Visual, Hearing – Auditory, Touch – Kinesthetic, Smell – Olfactory, and Taste – Gustatory

Linguistic – Language is a filter of our understanding – we assign our information to a mental map – there are six things we can do inside our minds – we can create and recall –

Pictures, Sounds, Feelings, Tastes, Smells, Words (self-talk)

Programming – our known patterns, including our behaviors and habits – can be a detriment or advantage – good news, everything that can be learned, can be unlearned.

History of NLP

Neuro linguistic programming (NLP) was founded in the early 1970s by a psychology student – Richard Bandler, and John Grander, an Assistant Professor of Linguistics at the University of California – they studied three therapists of that time – these excellent achievers – Hypnotherapist, Milton Erickson – Virginia Satir, pioneer of Family Therapy and Fritz Perls, who later discovered Gestalt Therapy.

Philosophy of NLP – The Presuppositions of NLP 

NLP presuppositions

  1. Communication is redundant. You are always communicating in all three representational systems.
  2. The meaning of your communication is the response you get(regardless of your intention).
  3. People respond to their own maps of reality, not reality itself.
  4. Requisite variety: the element in any system with the greatest flexibility will be the controlling element.
  5. People work perfectly. No one is wrong or broken.
  6. Choice is better than no choice.
  7. People always make the best choice available to them at the time.
  8. Every behavior is useful in some context.
  9. Behind every behavior is a positive intention.
  10. Anyone can do anything. If one person can do something, it is possible to model it and teach it to someone else.
  11. Mind and body are one single system.
  12. People already have all the resources they need. What they need is to be able to access those resources at appropriate times and places.
  13. There is no such thing as failure, only feedback. Anything that is worth doing well is worth doing badly at first.
  14. Chunking down. Anything can be accomplished by anyone if you break down the task into small enough chunks.
